THE DOOLITTLE RAID (CON'T)
This excellent seldom seen footage labeled Naval Photographic Center #11589 is a continuation of NPC #11588 which is also excellent footage of the Doolittle Raid. Obvious reasons for this being the Doolittle Raid are as follows: from 01:30-01:33 USS Hornet (CV-8) with B-25's on flight deck; from 02:45-02:52 the "bean bag drop" (with message attached from pilot) alerting Admiral Halsey without breaking radio silence of enemy picket ships ahead; from 05:32-05:35 Admiral Halsey in foul weather gear (was not present at the Battle of Midway). Also, beside the Doolittle footage, from 04:58-05:02 an unidentified object in the water.
